What about when his low kicking % has also meant instead on a 12 point lead with 10 minutes to go, we only have an 8 point lead. The keeps the opposition in the game with a sniff of possibility.
We wear our heart on our sleeve.

well you are the one singing the song about 80% being an "acceptable" standard, so list all the current NRL goal kickers who kick at 80% or better for their careers?

gee i dont know maybe because you said


"80%+ is the standard acceptable percentage for a pro NRL player"


by saying that you are saying anything less in unacceptable and there for not up to standard.

you said 80% was the acceptable standard there is only 1 kicker (to my knowledge) in the nrl who has a career goal kicking percentage over that so by YOUR theory not mine there is 15 goal kickers in the NRL not up to standard

We certainly don't kick as well as Union players. Is it something to do with the ball?

Ron its not even about percentages, its about momentum, last week we were getting smashed all over the park, we somehow get a try that makes it 12-4, if we kick the goal we are one scoring play behind and our intensity lifts, crowd gets into the game, penalties go our way, its a full momentum shift. We miss the kick from 10m to the left of the posts and our heads go down, the crowd groans and the Dogs go in again.

Would the kick have won the game for us, not necessarily, did the kick change the momentum of the game, definately.

Goalkicking is not always about percentages. Having said that his percentage is awful and the way he is strking them is worse. He is pulling them all left which is the 'I'm tired' side as well.

Who cares about how anyone else is kicking, you are flogging a dead horse.

I dont give two hoots what burgandy says now - goal kicking is a problem, plain and simple.

Why bother arguing the point?
